The major naval powers--Britain, America, Russia, and Japan--have all played a part in the theater of war at sea over the last one hundred years. In 1905, when this book begins, the first major engagement between ironclad fleets--the Battle of Tsu-Shima--took place in the Far Eas...t and decided the outcome of the Russo-Japanese war in Japan's favor. What follows are the highly sea battles of our century, graphically reconstructed for the reader. Victories, defeats, and mutinies of sea, from the battle with the Bismarck to the battles of Midway and Guadalcanal, are all recorded in sometimes horrific detail. This is a moving testament to battles that changed the world.
